Abstract

The purpose of the present study was to determine if there were any significant benefits using a brief, 15 minute Mindfulness Meditation (MM) intervention on mood and perceived stress in a mixed-design. Fifty undergraduates (Mage=22.78, SD=2.25) were randomly assigned to one of two groups: the experimental group (listened to guided MM recording) and the control group (listened to sounds of nature). Each group filled out a demographics survey, and completed the Quick Mood Scale (Woodruffe-Peacock et. al, 1998) and the Perceived Stress Scale (Cohen et. al, 1983) pre- and post-intervention. Results indicated that brief MM interventions improved mood and perceived stress.
